Here’s an idea for bloggers with an archaeological bent. I’m thinking of putting together a one-off carnival about people’s nearest archaeological sites. You go to the nearest site you’re aware of, snap a picture of it and explain (in as many or few words you like) the site’s significance and life-history in a blog entry. Then you send me the link, and when I’ve got a fair number, I put them together in a link-fest, plug it on Reddit & Co, everybody votes for it and we all get a traffic spike. You don’t need any formal qualifications to contribute.
Sound like fun? Please leave a comment if you’re interested.
Update 25 June: Loads of bloggers have expressed interest in this project and I’ve already received the first submission. So, Dear Reader, go for it! As soon as I have nine submissions, the carnival goes live, and subsequent contributions will be added as they appear.
Update 27 June: Three contributions so far and looking good…
Update 1 July: Five contributions, keep ‘em coming!
Update 19 July: Carnival on-line now.
